Zechariah 4:1-13
1. Then the angel who was speaking with me returned and roused me, as a man who is awakened from his sleep.
2. He said to me, "What do you see?" And I said, "I see, and behold, a lampstand all of gold with its bowl on the top of it, and its seven lamps on it with seven spouts belonging to each of the lamps which are on the top of it;
3. also two olive trees by it, one on the right side of the bowl and the other on its left side."
4. Then I said to the angel who was speaking with me saying, "What are these, my lord?"
5. So the angel who was speaking with me answered and said to me, "Do you not know what these are?" And I said, "No, my lord."
6. Then he said to me, "This is the word of the LORD to Zerubbabel saying, 'Not by might nor by power, but by My Spirit,' says the LORD of hosts.
7. 'What are you, O great mountain? Before Zerubbabel you will become a plain; and he will bring forth the top stone with shouts of "Grace, grace to it!"'"
8. Also the word of the LORD came to me, saying,
9. "The hands of Zerubbabel have laid the foundation of this house, and his hands will finish it. Then you will know that the LORD of hosts has sent me to you.
10. "For who has despised the day of small things? But these seven will be glad when they see the plumb line in the hand of Zerubbabel--these are the eyes of the LORD which range to and fro throughout the earth."
11. Then I said to him, "What are these two olive trees on the right of the lampstand and on its left?"
12. And I answered the second time and said to him, "What are the two olive branches which are beside the two golden pipes, which empty the golden oil from themselves?"
13. So he answered me, saying, "Do you not know what these are?" And I said, "No, my lord."

Zechariah 5:1-11
1. Then I lifted up my eyes again and looked, and behold, there was a flying scroll.
2. And he said to me, "What do you see?" And I answered, "I see a flying scroll; its length is twenty cubits and its width ten cubits."
3. Then he said to me, "This is the curse that is going forth over the face of the whole land; surely everyone who steals will be purged away according to the writing on one side, and everyone who swears will be purged away according to the writing on the other side.
4. "I will make it go forth," declares the LORD of hosts, "and it will enter the house of the thief and the house of the one who swears falsely by My name; and it will spend the night within that house and consume it with its timber and stones."
5. Then the angel who was speaking with me went out and said to me, "Lift up now your eyes and see what this is going forth."
6. I said, "What is it?" And he said, "This is the ephah going forth." Again he said, "This is their appearance in all the land
7. (and behold, a lead cover was lifted up); and this is a woman sitting inside the ephah."
8. Then he said, "This is Wickedness!" And he threw her down into the middle of the ephah and cast the lead weight on its opening.
9. Then I lifted up my eyes and looked, and there two women were coming out with the wind in their wings; and they had wings like the wings of a stork, and they lifted up the ephah between the earth and the heavens.
10. I said to the angel who was speaking with me, "Where are they taking the ephah?"
11. Then he said to me, "To build a temple for her in the land of Shinar; and when it is prepared, she will be set there on her own pedestal."

Zechariah 6:1-15
1. Now I lifted up my eyes again and looked, and behold, four chariots were coming forth from between the two mountains; and the mountains were bronze mountains.
2. With the first chariot were red horses, with the second chariot black horses,
3. with the third chariot white horses, and with the fourth chariot strong dappled horses.
4. Then I spoke and said to the angel who was speaking with me, "What are these, my lord?"
5. The angel replied to me, "These are the four spirits of heaven, going forth after standing before the Lord of all the earth,
6. with one of which the black horses are going forth to the north country; and the white ones go forth after them, while the dappled ones go forth to the south country.
7. "When the strong ones went out, they were eager to go to patrol the earth." And He said, "Go, patrol the earth." So they patrolled the earth.
8. Then He cried out to me and spoke to me saying, "See, those who are going to the land of the north have appeased My wrath in the land of the north."
9. The word of the LORD also came to me, saying,
10. "Take an offering from the exiles, from Heldai, Tobijah and Jedaiah; and you go the same day and enter the house of Josiah the son of Zephaniah, where they have arrived from Babylon.
11. "Take silver and gold, make an ornate crown and set it on the head of Joshua the son of Jehozadak, the high priest.
12. "Then say to him, 'Thus says the LORD of hosts, "Behold, a man whose name is Branch, for He will branch out from where He is; and He will build the temple of the LORD.
13. "Yes, it is He who will build the temple of the LORD, and He who will bear the honor and sit and rule on His throne. Thus, He will be a priest on His throne, and the counsel of peace will be between the two offices."'
14. "Now the crown will become a reminder in the temple of the LORD to Helem, Tobijah, Jedaiah and Hen the son of Zephaniah.
15. "Those who are far off will come and build the temple of the LORD." Then you will know that the LORD of hosts has sent me to you. And it will take place if you completely obey the LORD your God.

Psalms 148:1-6
1. Praise the LORD! Praise the LORD from the heavens; Praise Him in the heights!
2. Praise Him, all His angels; Praise Him, all His hosts!
3. Praise Him, sun and moon; Praise Him, all stars of light!
4. Praise Him, highest heavens, And the waters that are above the heavens!
5. Let them praise the name of the LORD, For He commanded and they were created.
6. He has also established them forever and ever; He has made a decree which will not pass away.

Proverbs 30:24-28
24. Four things are small on the earth, But they are exceedingly wise:
25. The ants are not a strong people, But they prepare their food in the summer;
26. The shephanim are not mighty people, Yet they make their houses in the rocks;
27. The locusts have no king, Yet all of them go out in ranks;
28. The lizard you may grasp with the hands, Yet it is in kings' palaces.

Revelation 17:1-18
1. Then one of the seven angels who had the seven bowls came and spoke with me, saying, "Come here, I will show you the judgment of the great harlot who sits on many waters,
2. with whom the kings of the earth committed acts of immorality, and those who dwell on the earth were made drunk with the wine of her immorality."
3. And he carried me away in the Spirit into a wilderness; and I saw a woman sitting on a scarlet beast, full of blasphemous names, having seven heads and ten horns.
4. The woman was clothed in purple and scarlet, and adorned with gold and precious stones and pearls, having in her hand a gold cup full of abominations and of the unclean things of her immorality,
5. and on her forehead a name was written, a mystery, "BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND OF THE ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH."
6. And I saw the woman drunk with the blood of the saints, and with the blood of the witnesses of Jesus. When I saw her, I wondered greatly.
7. And the angel said to me, "Why do you wonder? I will tell you the mystery of the woman and of the beast that carries her, which has the seven heads and the ten horns.
8. "The beast that you saw was, and is not, and is about to come up out of the abyss and go to destruction. And those who dwell on the earth, whose name has not been written in the book of life from the foundation of the world, will wonder when they see the beast, that he was and is not and will come.
9. "Here is the mind which has wisdom. The seven heads are seven mountains on which the woman sits,
10. and they are seven kings; five have fallen, one is, the other has not yet come; and when he comes, he must remain a little while.
11. "The beast which was and is not, is himself also an eighth and is one of the seven, and he goes to destruction.
12. "The ten horns which you saw are ten kings who have not yet received a kingdom, but they receive authority as kings with the beast for one hour.
13. "These have one purpose, and they give their power and authority to the beast.
14. "These will wage war against the Lamb, and the Lamb will overcome them, because He is Lord of lords and King of kings, and those who are with Him are the called and chosen and faithful."
15. And he said to me, "The waters which you saw where the harlot sits, are peoples and multitudes and nations and tongues.
16. "And the ten horns which you saw, and the beast, these will hate the harlot and will make her desolate and naked, and will eat her flesh and will burn her up with fire.
17. "For God has put it in their hearts to execute His purpose by having a common purpose, and by giving their kingdom to the beast, until the words of God will be fulfilled.
18. "The woman whom you saw is the great city, which reigns over the kings of the earth."
